My Little Pony Mod

Let it be said here that my friend Meredith has good ideas. A few weeks ago, one of her ideas was to mod some My Little Ponies, and ever since she mentioned the idea, the tiny wheels in my brain have been turning.

I still have most of the My Little Ponies from when I was a kid. Even that one that the dog chewed up that time. And it was that sad, chewed-up pony that I decided would be perfect to turn into Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite.

Here’s what I did.

First! I removed her mane. (Her tail was already long gone.)

Then! I made her hair, skirt, and choker using polymer clay.

After that! I baked the whole mess at 175 degrees for 40 minutes.

And finally! I painted my wee Liz pony.

My Little Elizabeth

I’m doing Songbird next. Stay tuned.

Trophy Masks

Our beloved Bethany went on a decoupaging spree over the weekend and decorated her walls with Splicer masks. Or, more likely, she popped down to Rapture to Electro Bolt a few Leadheads and collected their blood-spattered masks as trophies to hang in her apartment. Whichever, they look glorious. Click the pics below to see ’em big!

If you don’t have an aggressive Splicer and a wrench handy but would like to adorn your own walls with a BioShock bunny mask, make sure to watch the first installment of Crafting with Bethany to learn how to create one of your very own.
